Overview

Off-boardwalk sleep overlooking the marina, with a full floor of gaming, 16 bars and restaurants, shops, a spa and world class shows

The Lowdown

Transformed from the Trump Marina to the Golden Nugget during a $150 million revamp in 2013, this party-loving gaming hotel is a self-contained enclave for slots, spa, shopping, shows and more. All 728 guestrooms were given a face-lift during the renovation and now show off modern style in poker chip–red, white and black, with clashing patterns from carpet to curtain and all the mod cons, including 42-inch TVs, iPod docking stations, mini-fridges and free WiFi. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the Frank Farley Marina, the hotel grounds and the skyline. The main gaming floor houses 1,500 slot machines, a range of table games such as blackjack and roulette, and a dedicated (and televised) poker room. On the dining front, the Golden Nugget offers everything from steak at Vic & Anthony’s to fish dishes and water views at the 30th-floor Chart House, plus an all-you-can-eat buffet that’s open until 8 p.m. For a dose of pampering, the 12,000-square-foot spa has 11 treatment rooms, as well as a full salon and a sauna, and there’s retail indulgence in the hotel’s nine fashion boutiques.

In the Area

Take the five- to 10-minute jitney over to the main boardwalk for some requisite AC sightseeing. The world famous boardwalk is lined with restaurants, bars, amusement piers and shops specializing in everything from high-end jewelry to the iconic saltwater taffy. For serious shoppers, Tanger Outlets is the spot to score bargains on big-name brands, while Pier Shops at Caesars is home to the luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Book a splurge-worthy dinner at the Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill or Wolfgang Puck American Grille, or stay on-site and try the Golden Nugget’s Euro-style Michael Patrick’s Brasserie.

Spa and Golden Nugget
Reviewed 4 days ago

I had a wonderful facial with Kristina and got the opportunity to use the spa area-jacuzzi, steam room etc. The view from my room on the 26th floor facing towards the ocean was one I enjoyed for my three days there. The food was all very good - Lilli's, Happy Hour at the Chart House and the delicious crab legs at Vic and Anthony's. I do not gamble much but found enough to keep myself busy and entertained and would recommend a visit.

Reggie was exceptional. He was extremely friendly and always checked up on my family and I to see if we needed anything. Definitely made our breakfast at the buffet even more enjoyable. If you got you must ask for Reggie!

Micheal Patrick's can't get orders straight
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I stopped at Michael Patrick's to get 2 cheese steaks for the ride home . I have had problems before when ordering food to go so I am very specific as to the way or what I want on my sandwiches . Maybe hiring foreigners may save the billionaire buyer some money but this is a joke . I wanted sweet peppers, onions, tomatoes that's not too hard for any dummy to fulfill . There was 4 1"slices of onions no tomatoes and not 1 single slice of sweet pepper and they had the GUTS to charge a little over $33 . Getting ripped off was bad enough but I had to wait over a half hour to get shafted .

Nice little spot

Well, I happen to like The Golden Nugget for gambling or just walking around, perhaps grabbing some food. This is one of the smaller hotel/casinos tucked away out of the hubbub in Brigantine. If you don’t like crowds or huge hotels you get lost in, this is the place for you. That’s why I like it.

It’s a short 10 minute ride from the main casinos in Atlantic City. It sits across the street from the Marina so it’s nice quaint and quieter. The parking garage is free if you self park. Like most hotel casinos, the prices are nuts. I bought 1 small bottle of soda, 1 Red Bull size can of coffee and 1 black and white cookie. Guess how much? $14.00! That’s high but that’s the casino life.

I like the layout of the machines. It’s easy to find a good machine. I’ve won twice. They also have the shops, Asian food as well as other meal options and bars. Like I said, if you like quieter smaller hotel/casinos you’ll like this place. I haven’t stayed in the hotel yet, that’s next. I’m doing this review as an attraction. I gave it 3 stars because only the Borgata is a 5 Star plus it is smaller and not near the boardwalk. I would of given it a 4 if I stayed in a room and it was closer to the action
